The mystery

We must have a reason
They said
And began to
Jostle madly about

We must have the answer
They said
And began to
Light the torches

To show the way
Or start a mob

I’ll never be able to tell

I was trampled underfoot
As they rushed toward me

We must have the answer
they said
We must be certain
We must know good from evil.

So that we do not trespass.
Or break a rule

And so they chose to eat the fruit again.

We must be safe
They said
And began
To build a wall

But who ended up being cast out?
